Happy Halloween Friends

Hello Stamping Friends,

Happy Halloween! Was your day filled with trick or treating or passing out candy? I have to say that I miss my kids being little and the fun and excitement of picking out costumes, getting ready on Halloween, eating pizza before heading out, and traveling through the neighborhoods seeing friends and family. I may just have to tag-along with some other family next year. Any takers?

This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing Halloween ideas with you. This is one of my recent classes that I offered virtually, a Halloween sampler home decor piece. 

It is 12"x12"finished (each square inside is 3") and is filled with Halloween goodies. Each square is a small representation of a Halloween tradition or thought; spiders, haunted houses, jack-o-laterns, bats, and owls. Isn't it so much fun? I love offering these classes. I am offering a fall one for Thanksgiving. If you are interested, let me know by November 5th at 6pm and you will be included in this month's virtual class. I'll be offering one in December for Christmas. I can't wait to make the two of them. 

My youngest son (16 yrs old) painted this pumpkin for Halloween this year. He said he was going to a friend's house to paint pumpkins one night and this is what he brought home. He is such a kind-hearted soul. He supports all first responders and wanted to show his support. Definitely not a traditional jack-o-latern at all, but I love it. 

Happy Halloween. Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

Time for Some Treats

Hello Stamping Friends,

This week at Sisters in Stamping we are sharing some cute little treats with everyone. Everyone loves treats whether giving them or receiving them they are fun and these treats are no different. Part of the fun of planning a party is the favors (treats) that you will be giving to all of your attendees. Plus it's just "sweet" to receive a little something as a thank you or thinking of you. This kind of treat is completely unexpected, but truly appreciated.

I continued with the fall theme that I used earlier this week for the color challenge with the Stampers Dozen. The card will be the perfect accompaniment with this little treat. 

I used one of the round tins from the mini catalog as my starting treat holder. These tins are bigger than one may think. They are so fun to decorate and I love that the toop is clear so you can see the treat waiting for you.

The side is decorated with some designer series paper and I think it finishes it off perfectly. The plaid paper in the Holiday Catalog is so awesome. It has plaid paper for so many different occasions; fall, Christmas, just because to name a few. I think everyone should order it. Now that I said that, you better really get it before it is sold out. 

Isn't this the cutest little treat? It's perfect filled with caramels for the fall season. That's just my ever, not-so-humble opinion. (wink)

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping for more treat ideas.

A Fall Color Challenge Blog Hop with the Stampers Dozen

Hello Stamping Friends,

Time for another great blog hop with the Stampers Dozen. I always look forward to the challenge of creating for this monthly blog hop. This month is no different. A good fall color challenge is what we were given this month. I enjoy color challenges because it often takes me out of my comfort zone of the colors I use most often. 

This color challenge is no different. I probably wouldn't have put these particular colors together on my own, but I think they are pretty great together after working with them. And they are definitely great for fall cards, don't you think?

This is a simple card that comes together very quickly. One stamp set, four pads, one designer series paper pack and three sheets of cardstock. I also added a smidge of metallic mesh ribbon for an extra little touch. Oh, wait, let's not forget the dimensionals. You know they are my favorite. 

Speaking of favorites, fall is also my favorite season. The leaves are so vibrant and colorful, crisp nights, pumpkins, hay rides, cider donuts, and everything else that comes with it. The only problem I have is the fact that winter will soon be upon us and that is my least favorite season. 

Remember to keep hopping through to see even more great projects made using these great fall colors. Click on the links below. Thank you for stopping by. I'll see you soon.
